Each year, the Concord Multicultural features a full lineup of performances, food vendors, craft vendors, artists and activities that represent more than 30 cultures from around the world, presented by folks who live and work locally.
Our food vendors are immigrant owned restaurants and local community members who share their culture through the delectable dishes of their home countries, or their ancestors' countries.
As you stroll down Capitol Street during the Festival, your taste buds will delight in flavors from around the world!
We are very fortunate to have a partnership with the New Hampshire Food Bank. All food is prepared in the Food Bank's commercial kitchen under the supervision and support of the Food Bank's Chefs and culinary students from the Recipes for Success Program.
Chef Jayson and Chef Paul work closely with the Festival committee and the new American food vendors to not only ensure food safety, but to provide support with menu planning and pricing, food preparation and service and other training that provides a valuable vocational experience for new Americans.
These experiences have led to opportunities for several new Americans to participate in other events to cook and sell food, and inspired them to pursue their own culinary business ventures.
Attendees can purchase vouchers at one of 3 voucher tents located on Capitol Street, among the food vendors. These tents will be managed by Event Staff. There will also be Event Staff walking around selling vouchers.
Voucher Tents will be marked with green balloons.
Vouchers can only be purchased with cash only, no credit cards. There are many banks with ATMs around the vicinity of the Festival.
Vouchers will be in $1 and $5 increments, and have the same value as cash. Food items will be priced accordingly to correspond with vouchers.
Food vendors will not be able to accept payment of any form except for vouchers. This applies to all food vendors, including food trucks and restaurants.
Unused vouchers can be donated to the Festival, to friends or other attendees, or refunded at one of the Voucher Tents.
Purchasing from vendors with non-food items (craft vendors, etc.) can be done with cash, and in some cases, credit cards, depending on the individual vendor.
The State of New Hampshire requires a 9% tax on all meals that are served, and in order to ensure that our Festival is in compliance with that law, we must operate this way with the voucher system.
We understand that this system may not be ideal, but we appreciate your cooperation!
If you have any questions prior to the event, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions at the event, please inquire at one of the voucher booths.
